Quick Reference

Teacher training colleges were renamed colleges of education following the recommendation of the Robbins Report in 1963. Many of these later closed or merged with polytechnics or colleges of further education when teacher training places were greatly reduced in the 1970s. Those which remained often did so in partnership with a university which validated their awards, or became autonomous colleges of higher education.
